Reverend Wattplower in Watt Yellow: Unleash the Explosive Sound of Mike Watt's Signature Bass
Introducing the Reverend Mike Watt Signature Wattplower in striking Watt Yellow, a bass guitar that captures the spirit of legendary punk rock bassist Mike Watt. Known for his work with The Minutemen, fIREHOSE, and The Stooges, Watt's powerful playing has inspired generations of musicians. This bass is the result of a four-year collaboration between Watt and Reverend, meticulously designed to deliver the perfect balance of sonic explosiveness and supreme playability.
The Reverend Wattplower features a Korina solid body, offering a highly resonant and lively tone. Its 30" scale and compact size make it perfect for bassists who need to navigate dark stages and play long sets. The 3-piece Korina neck is laminated for strength and is adorned with a rosewood fingerboard for smooth playability. The Hipshot A Style Brass bridge provides excellent intonation and impressive sustain.
Unique to this signature model, the Wattplower includes an anchor inlay at the first fret and "Wattplower" at the seventeenth fret, reflecting Mike Watt's personal touch. The Luminlay dots on the side of the neck offer extra guidance for players in low-light environments. The P-Blade pickup ensures a balanced volume and tone when switching, while the Hipshot Ultralight tuners provide a more comfortable and balanced bass-playing experience.
